Voyager Observations of Anomalous and Galactic Cosmic Rays During 1998
We present energy spectra of anomalous and galactic cosmic rays over a wide energy range by combining data from the Low Energy Charged Particle experiment and the Cosmic Ray experiment on the Voyager spacecraft. The data set covers all of 1998. We compare energy spectra obtained from Voyagers 1 and 2. The energy range covered contains the peak intensity in the spectra for anomalous cosmic ray hydrogen, helium, and oxygen. The spectra presented can be used to constrain models of solar modulation.
